1600 year old news in Coptic on papyrus: "Jesus of Nazareth had a wife"

News just in!

"....1600 year old document's message could shake up Christianity

Karen King, historian of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School has identified a scrap of papyrus written in Coptic in the fourth century that contains a phrase never before seen in any piece of Scripture... i.e. "Jesus said to them, ‘My wife ... ’ "

The faded papyrus fragment has eight lines on one side, in black ink legible under a magnifying glass.

Just below the line about Jesus having a wife, the papyrus includes a second provocative clause saying, "she will be able to be my disciple."

A sign of the times perhaps, lessening of the Patriachy...?
